to turn to lindsey graham who said if mitt romney loses republican states because he wasn't conservative enough he will quote, go nuts. i have heard a lot of republicans saying just that. >> well, i just think the honest truth is that we have a demographic problem. if we had had 40% of the hispanic vote mitt romney would be president. mccain got 31% and romney got 27%. we are going in the wrong direction. >> how do you change that? >> you have extremes in your party who on the immigration issue don't want to see a compromise. here is what i want to see, i want to see it lead to the 12 million illegal immigrants. i want a comprehensiveclusion and that is all i ask and all, most americans want. i can they saw him as a lesser of two evils between obama and us. he didn't lift a finger to do reform as he had promised. immigration is a national issue. it is an american issue and there is a solution to be found out there if people want to find it. americans are going to see massive tax increased. every american will feel the effects. what level of hope do you have that congress can come togethe

. there is senator mccain, ayotte and graham talking about the future of the benghazi investigation. let's take a listen. >> establish such a select committee and we will urge the senate leadership to act on it as soon as possible. while we await the findings and recommendations of the administration's internal review of the benghazi attack, it is essential for the congress to conduct its own independent assessment. let me be clear. there is no credibility amongst most of us concerning the administration and the numerous controversies and contradictions that have been involved in their handling of this issue. it is essential for the congress to conduct its own independent assessment. several different committees of jurisdiction in both the house and senate are calling briefings, planning hearings and reviewing portions of this case. we believe that the complexity and gravity of this matter warrant the establishment of a temporary select committee that can conduct an integrated review of the many national security issues involved which cut across multiple executive agencies and legislative commi
to john mccain, that's senator lindsey graham taking to the microphone there but listening to senator mccain who has been very vocal about trying to find out and get answers to what happened in benghazi on september 11th. a loss of four american lives there. critical of ambassador susan rice as we've heard senator john mccain talk about her, colonel jack jacobs is still with me. he's calling for a select committee. it most likely will not happen. >> it's my guess too. >> but making a lot of noise to make it happen. now we have this coming on the heels of the fact that david petraeus will testify to the senate intelligence committee, however, behind closed doors. >> yeah, i don't think he's necessarily going -- petraeus going to necessarily have very much to add to what we already know. there's little doubt in my mind and the mind of most military people the attack on the compound in benghazi was preplanned, small arms and automatic represent, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars no a concerted effort. that's preplanned and in most cases rehearsed. for the white house to say, no, it wasn
york democrat charles schumer and south carolina lindsey graham talking about the pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now living in the united states. >> and deportation is not going to work, fix it in a way we don't have a third wave the illegal immigration, they want more legal immigration and they want to fix illegal immigration once and for all, and after 12 billion once you secure the border, and you do nothing until you secure the border, come out shadows, pay taxes and for the law they broke and can't stay unless they learn our language and have to get in the back of the line. >> senator graham and i have talked and we are resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we had put together a comprehensive detailed blueprint on immigration reform, it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration, but very much against illegal immigration. >> harris: the plan calls for securing the border and developing a document to make sure employers know they're hiring peopl
. that is what he said yesterday. his taking a shot at senator mccain and senator graham was uncalled for. if he says come after me, then by golly, is he going to shoulder the responsibility in because it looks like they were about ready to throw her under the bus. so it hasn't changed anything from my per speculative. as to what she said. she was saying exactly what the political shop at the white house told her to say. >> chris: so again, i want to be clear. this is a very important point. you are saying you believe her comments to the american people that sunday were political. they weren't just based on mistaken c.i.a. talking points. >> i think it's very clear, i don't want to say that what the c.i.a. was saying to her or not saying to her. although it's very clear that in her position she is going to get freezed by the intelligence community as to -- briefed by the intelligence community who that was. we are still looking in to that and to try to come to some conclusion. the fact is, she went out and was making a political statement. i don't think there is any question about that. >> chris
lindsey graham saying he holds the president ultimately responsible for benghazi. and on the hannity program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia
. shannon: yeah. and there are those who include senator lindsey graham who are insisted we have access to that individual and pushing the tunisian government to insure we would get some kind of access which has made it more of a public conversation about why we don't know more about holding that person or persons individually accountable. we have gotten different briefs from the cia, the pentagon, some of this has been anonymous information, but there are differences in some of the timelines and explanations about what happened. at what point do the agencies sort of dig in to protect themselves, their personnel and what they believe they did right versus versions ha we're getting from the white house -- that we're getting from the white house and elsewhere? >> yeah. agencies are going to do that. you've already seen that from the cia with the criticism that they held back for a while, then it reported, hey, these guys were sent from the annex to the consulate, they rescued everyone but the ambassador because couldn't find him. this was a consulate in name only, they were holding back t
. >> reporter: republican senator lindsey graham is pushing for a committee to investigate all of this, saying it's grown too vast and intertwined for individual committees to investigate separately. >> thank you. president obama is putting together his cabinet for a second term, including a new cia director. so far, hillary clinton has confirmed she's going to leave. as bill plante reports, republicans already are objecting to her potential replacement. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. that's exactly right. cbs news has learned that the president is likely to nominate susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. white house sources say the president feels that he should be able to choose the cabinet members he wants, and they say that rice has done a good job on iran and north korea. but rice was the public face of the administration's initial response to the attacks in benghazi, libya, saying that they were prompted by spontaneous protests, not terrorism, and she's come under fire from republicans. when asked ab
graham saying "we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's a solution to an american problem." softening towards immigration reform is even happening among some fox news channel personalities. of course, not on fox news channel, but on the radio shows. but still, it's happening. so immigration reform may be more within the realm of possibility in the near term than it has been for a long time. last week on thursday, two days after the election, mark kelly, the husband of gabrielle giffords made a statement at the sentencing hearing of the man who shot her and 18 other people outside a tucson supermarket. it included a poignant call for a restoration to sanity on gun policy in this country for at least a return to what used to be the gun laws in america "we have a political class afraid to do something as simple as having meaningful debate about gun laws and how they are being enforced. we have passed up the opportunity to address this issue. after columbine, virginia tech, aurora, we h
by senator graham. for them to see that we have been attacked by enemies of the united states, our embassy and therefore the united states is being attacked, and sunsinstead joining in and seeing who the enemy was to find them and to bring them to justice, they have seen fit to jointly want to destroy the political career of an ambassador that was merely repeating the intelligence that was given to her. this is not what is expected of our heroes. clearly when a family, america, is under attack, you don't really take sides of the attacker and start charging malfeasance to the commander in chief. >> but, mr. rangel, mr. mccain, senator mccain says he wants more information, so he does a press conference. he goes to the floor of the senate. he appears on the "today" show. but he doesn't attend the briefing where he might have got some answers to his questions. >> well, i have to admit that a lot of us are addicted to the television screens rather than to the facts in this case, but i would hope that the senators would reconsider and to recognize that all america could easily join with them if
for the president. he hit back during his press conference. let's listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's the slow burn for the president i'd say. this morning mccain had some strong words for his former opponent, the president. let's listen to mccain. >> i know people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars, and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, lindsay graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during, and after the attack. what's behind all this anger? jonathan alter is
mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >>. >> and the president drew a line on taxes saying revenue must come from people who make over $250,000. >> what have i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> i want to bring in a columnist for the "washington post." good morning. let's start with you. over the next two days, congress is holding those closed hearings on libya. we saw a very strong defense on susan rice. do you think number one, we'll learn something from the hearings. do you think we'll hear a nomination for susan rice? >> well, it's the nomination that certainly seem to be what obama was hinting at yesterday, although he was clear he had not made the decision. that was an exthe record
the investigation into the attack on our consulate in benghazi. >> as of now sen dorr lindsay graham who is leading the charges to find answers says it is essential for him to still testify. >> one thing that has to happen in my view we have to get to the bottom of benghazi. i hate what happened to general petraeus but we have twour dead americans in benghazi. i don't see how in the world you could find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. it is essential he gives testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. you have got the department that needs to explain themselves intelligence committee. god knows the state department needs to answer for their behavior regarding benghazi. i would suggest we have the house and senate members we do this together not have three different committees going off in three different directions so we can get to the bottom of it like we did in watergate and iraq contra. that would be smart for the congress to combine resources. >> it will take place thursday. the state department says she wi
that the general's testimony is still very essential to this investigation. here's senator lindsey graham. >> i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. martha: senator graham went on to say he is focusing on the four americans killed in benghazi and quote, we have a national security failure in the makings. lots of questions here. we'll examine them throughout the next two hours. gregg: that's right. we're also getting some new videotape of a home of the women at the center of this scandal. cameras catching shots of the charlotte, north carolina, house where paula broadwell lives with her husband. she spent a year with david petraeus writing the biography, all in. she is a 40-year-old graduate of u.s. military academy. an army reserve officer. she is married with two young sons. martha: petraeus's resignation raises a flood of questions about the intel community, the timing of this announcement and the investigation into benghazi. just a couple minutes we'll be joined live by former cia director m
graham said the gop would be open to other means of increasing revenue. >> we don't need to raise taxes, we need to limit loop shoels and deductions for the wealthy. >> while members are not supportive of the tax plan, john boehner are urging them to make compromise, something president obama senior adviser david axelrod called encouraging. >> there's money tbe gained by closing some of these loopholes and applying them to deficit reductions. >> one half of those automatic spending cuts would affect the defense department's budget. david martin shows us what that means for the military. >> reporter: the dreaded sequestration would double the $500 billion in cuts the pentagon is already planning to make over the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words. >> if sequestration goes into effect it's a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: the strategy of pivoting away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan towards the pacific and an emerging chinese superpower would come undone. >> all of that can go to hell if this congress doesn't face up and deal with the issue of s
the possibility of rice as secretary of state, senator linds graham had this to say on "face the nation." >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi d debacle. we need to get to the bottom of t the president has a lot of leeway with me and others when it comes to making appointments but i'm not going to promote somebody who i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. >> reporter: white house says that these objections are unfounded that she was simply repeating what intelligence agencies had told her and graham should be aware of her minimal role. massachusetts senator john kerry was also talked about for secretary of state but now his name is being mentioned as possibility for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta. john brennan, president of homeland security adviser could have the cia job if he wanted it we're told. but if he wants to retire the job is likely to go to general petraeus' number two, michael morell. charlie, norah? >> bill thanks. >>> congress gets back to work with a
. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. megyn: but if the president believed that their best intel five days after the attack suggested the video was to blame, then why did we see this moment in the presidential debates, the second one, where he claimed he was calling this terror from day one? >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. is that what you're saying? >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before the he called the act of terror -- >> he did, in f
stress over. graham spanier was arraigned today on charges he tried to cover up allegations that jerry sandusky was sexually abusing boys on the school campus. among the charges, obstruction of justice, endangering the welfare of children and purgery. bail is $125,000. but it is unsecured, so that means he doesn't have to pay it unless he fails to show up for a court date. he will not be allowed to travel outside the state without the court's permission. >>> after meeting with with the president, one militant group in mali is urging other groups to start a political dialogue and it's an important group, at least from our understanding when we were covering the story. the armed group is one of many to have taken over the northern part of mali. what does that mean? state department spokesman welcomed the announcement that says the group has only talked the talk and need to walk the work and work on a deal. it's been 461 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. it is time to ask what are we going to do to get it back. and now, our fourth story. president obama won re-election last
of hurricane katrina. >> michael graham told me out on staten island as well. more than half a million households are still without power. 40,000 homes on the rockaway peninsulas. deb fayerick is there and how angry are people? >> people are so frustrated and angry. it's been only 12 days since the storm hit. you're not too far from jfk. that light is basically illuminating a corner. that means there's no heat. boilers can't work. there are no washer triers, no way to charge a cell phone. no way to use a computer to access any sort of outside help, so they feel they're just being cut off here and they cannot understand why atlantic power authority, which is a state-owned company, can't get the lights on. we spoke earlier to couple of people at a rally and they were so frustrated. take a listen. >> restore the power to our community now! now! we're done! >> you know, and you just, you can see that level really, they just don't know what to do. they open for example the city opened up a center where you can go and get additional sort of food stamp benefits and welfare benefits, money. pe
